BioAstin and Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica continue to be the #1 brands of astaxanthin and spirulina, respectively, in the United States natural products channel. In spite of significantly increased demand, bulk net sales declined 6% due to lower production in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Bulk spirulina sales were down 9% while bulk astaxanthin dropped 5%.

“The increase in first quarter operating expenses reflects the investment we are making in brand development, marketing, and people with successful business-building track records in consumer packaged goods. We are confident that this investment strengthens our foundation for continued revenue growth, improved margins and resulting profit,” added Bailey.

For the trailing 12 months ended June 30, 2012, compared to the trailing 12 months ended June 30, 2011, revenues were $25,187,000 compared to revenues of $18,921,000, an increase of 33%.
